Ladies, it’s time to forget everything you’ve learnt about bra size. And just follow these simple rules:

  • Check the band size. Because it matters.

The band of your bra is responsible for most of the heavy lifting. Once you’ve come across your perfect band size, you can choose that same band size in all our bras (whether it’s Gwen Lift or Lucy Breeze).

[Tip: Try not having more than a 5-cm {2-inch} gap between your torso and bra band. Check using your fingers to ensure this!]

  • Find your cup size (which is related to the band size!)

The cup is related to the bra’s band size. You could be an A with one band size and a C with another (nope, we’re not kidding). So if you decide to change your band size, you’d need to change your cup size too!

[Tip: Scoop your breast upward with one hand and tuck it into the bra to make sure it fits the cup fully.]

  • Find your sister sizes!

This means finding your bra size equivalents! For instance, if you’re a 34C, your sister sizes (related by the cup size) would be 32D, 36B, 38A and so on. So let’s say your band size is uncomfortable and you want to go one band size up, you can easily find the right cup size that relates to it and get a bra that fits comfortably well!

[Tip: the trick to find your sister size is - as you go up a band size, go down a cup size and vice versa!]


Other ways to get the right bra size:

  • Check your underwire. It shouldn’t dig into the sides of your breasts.
  • Check the straps. If the straps are loose and falling, you’d need to tighten them or find the right bra size. They shouldn’t rest too far the edge of your shoulders.
  • Check the centre-front part of the bra. It shouldn’t dig into your chest.
